Whitby RNLI volunteers were called on Tuesday December 31 to support the local coastguard team in getting the dog to safety.

The injured dog was located but it was decided that the safest method of extraction due to the location as well as the size of the dog was via lifeboat.

The owner and his dog Duke were returned safely to Whitby lifeboat station where family were waiting to take the dog straight to the vets.

Still from Whitby RNLI video.

Whitby RNLI have now released this video showing the rescue.

If you get into trouble on the coast you can alert the RNLI by calling 999 and asking for the coastguard.
